Wanted to get some info from personal use, of which wide angle zooms are giving everyone the best results. I'm using a digi SLR so I really want to go around 15mm-80mm. Of course that probably won't be possible but somewhere in that range. I'm mainly concerned at the wider end........also I don't have unlimited funds!!! Basically I need a good lens that I won't have to replace after a year of use! Looking for your suggestions!
I have the 28-105mm which is around $80 cheaper, great little lens to have....but probably not wide enough for you. I went for the Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8. Primarily because I was on a budget and I got it for $300, works well for me though.

Lyzzard.................10D body. The main uses would be close ramp type shots, i.e. where you have unlimited access to the subject. BUT, I also need one that could be used on close-in approach shot situations!! I just want to make sure all bases are covered!!(well, as well as they can be!!)
Thanks all who have replied!
